A man from southern Sweden has been reported to police for walking into the girls' changing room at a school athletic hall and taking a shower.

The incident occurred at the Åkrahäll school's sports hall in Nybro, southern Sweden, reported the local Barometern newspaper.

The gym-goer, who was described as "an older man", left a training session early to hit the showers, only to be discovered mid-lather by girls who entered the shower room soon after their practice has ended.

Police have suspicions that the incident was no accident. 

"These kinds of occurrences are rarely one-offs," Glenn Adolfsson of the local police told the paper.

He has now been reported for sexual molestation (sexuellt ofredande) and unauthorized access (olaga intrång).

Back in 2011, a Stockholm-area locker room was the scene of a crime whereby a police officer secretly filmed female officers in the nude by hiding a video camera inside a locker in the police station's changing room.

The ‘fairytale' boarding school nestled in a Swedish village

The words ‘boarding' and ‘school' often summon images of strict teachers, drab dormitories and downcast children. That image couldn't be further from reality at Sigtunaskolan Humanistiska Läroverket (SSHL), where boarders describe the ‘fairytale' school as a home away from home.
